In a judgment on Friday, Justice Inyang Ekwo equally upheld the appointment of Dr. Leonard Nzenwa as the party’s acting National Chairman.

Justice Ekwo granted all the reliefs sought in the suit filed by Nzenwa, among which was for the court to affirm the decision of the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) to suspend Sowore and Fabiyi for six months at its meeting held on March 27, 2019.
